ANTONIO LOPEZ 1970: SEX FASHION & DISCO

Out February 12, 2019

ANTONIO LOPEZ 1970: SEX FASHION & DISCO from filmmaker James Crump (Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art, Black White + Gray), is a vibrant time capsule of the decadent world of '70s haute couture as viewed through the eyes of Antonio Lopez, the dominant fashion illustrator of the era whose distinctive drawings graced the pages of Vogue and Elle. A Puerto Rican native raised in the Bronx, Antonio was a seductive arbiter of style and glamour who brought urban street elements to a postwar fashion world desperate for change and diversity. Counted among Antonio's discoveries were iconic beauties such as Grace Jones, Jessica Lange and Jerry Hall. Antonio's inner circle was also comprised of celebrated photographer Bill Cunningham and rival designers Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent. All these characters and more come together to create a vivid portrait of Antonio Lopez and the revolutionary fashion world he helped create.

Through archival footage and stills of studio life in Carnegie Hall, infamous venues such as Max's Kansas City and Hotel Chelsea and original interviews with principal characters from the time, Crump takes audiences back to the swinging seventies when fashion designers and their entourages gained the prominence of rock stars. ANTONIO LOPEZ 1970: SEX FASHION & DISCO, features interviews with Lange, Pat Cleveland, Warhol superstars Donna Jordan, Jane Forth and Patti D'Arbanville, as well as revered fashion photographer Bill Cunningham in his very last interview, and fashion world luminaries including Grace Coddington, Joan Juliet Buck, Michael Chow, Bob Colacello, Corey Tippin, and Paul Caranicas, among others. The film which Interview Magazine called "dazzling," perfectly captures Lopez and his entourage, blithely on a quest for beauty and pleasure before the decade, saturated by drug use, addiction and sexual promiscuity came to a crashing halt.
